    TrickBot's Anchor malware platform - which has historically threatened Windows systems - has now been ported to a new Linux backdoor version, Anchor_Linux.

     

    TrickBot's Anchor malware platform has been ported to infect Linux devices and compromise further high-impact and high-value targets using covert channels.

    TrickBot is a multi-purpose Windows malware platform that uses different modules to perform various malicious activities, including information stealing, password stealing, Windows domain infiltration, and malware delivery.

    TrickBot is rented by threat actors who use it to infiltrate a network and harvest anything of value. It is then used to deploy ransomware such as Ryuk and Conti to encrypt the network's devices as a final attack.
